Pietro Frigo receives Qualcomm Innovation Fellowship (QIF) for 2020

Pietro is the only winner in the Systems Security category for the European Edition, with competition from top European institutes such as ETH, EPFL, ICL, MPI, etc. The QIF program is focused on recognizing and rewarding innovative PhD students and their forward thinking ideas in research areas related to Qualcomm’s core values of innovation. Pietro's awarded research proposal focuses on automating reverse engineering and attack surface analysis for modern DRAM chips. This is a natural followup to his (TRRespass) work on finding vulnerabilities in state-of-the-art in-DRAM defenses against Rowhammer attacks, which was recently awarded "Best Paper" at the IEEE Symposium
